It's easy to set up and use. The WiFi is a great feature. I'm using this mostly for concert/Band photos and so far it's performed very well. It does great mp-4 of concerts with no blur and the audio isn't bad. The one thing I wish it did was control the flash on my iphone. Other than that I love it.
Not sure if this one will make it as an enhanced cell phone camera. Hut offers great potential for taking remote shots with the camera on the end of a monopod and held away from the photographer. Image quality is good and the lens seems to be pretty sharp. Software does not offer as many controls as a professional shooter would want.
